ATLANTA â€” (AP) Georgia football great Herschel Walker has multiple personalities _ a revelation in an upcoming book that surprises the man who coached the 1982 Heisman Trophy winner.
"That's all news to me," former Georgia coach Vince Dooley said in Friday editions of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "All I know is whatever personality he had when he had the football was the one I liked."
"Breaking Free" will chronicle Walker's life with multiple personality disorder, according to Shida Carr, a publicist at Simon & Schuster.
Carr said the book will be published in August, but gave no other details and declined to provide excerpts.
In three seasons at Georgia, Walker led the Bulldogs to a 33-3-1 record, three straight Southeastern Conference championships and the 1980 national title. He won the Heisman as a junior, then left school a year early to sign with the now-defunct U.S. Football League.
Walker played for the Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Vikings, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants. He has lived in Dallas since his playing career ended.
A former Georgia teammate also was caught off guard by Walker's revelation.
"I'm probably one of his closest friends and that's news to me," said Frank Ros, who was captain of Georgia's 1980 national championship team. "I knew he was working on a book but I just thought it was about football. He does 100 things at once and always has projects going on, but that blows me away."
The newspaper said Walker could not be reached for comment.
Multiple personality disorder, also known as dissociative identity disorder, is a rare mental condition in which one person has two or more distinct personalities, according to the Merck Manual of Medical Information.
Where's Herschel????????? Somebody needs to be fired!!!! Can't never spell or get a story straight. Y'all suck!
um, hello?? mto, is someone sleeping on the job??? wrong picture...get it together idiots!
AND WHAT, I WEAR CHAPSTICK...BUT WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH THE PRICE OF RICE IN CHINA
it's about time! y'all will have something to say if he has crusty lips! stop hating on everything mto!
I WONDER IF IT IS MAC OR LANCOME CAUSE THEY BOTH HAVE BANGIN LIP GLOSSES.
WILL&SAM CLOTHING COMING SOON!!!!
I hope he gets that worked out...terrible thing to have to deal with not only for him but for close friends and family as well.
The things people do to sell a book.
too thin to be gloss! possible chapstick ppl *sigh* *MTO, bring on the news please*
Sounds like a Wilt Chamberlain story to increase sales.
LMAO @ the this picture ooo his lipgloss is poppin
All for a book....
Its more exciting:)
His lipgloss brings all the boys to the yard...*** right... it's betta than yours...
people who live in glass houses should not hurl stones. Got it Fred?
MTO could not be happy by bringing us the story of this man's multiple personalities alone, instead it had to find a picture of him in which the man was wearing lip palm. This is yet two examples of what you do best; bring down our own people and also try to make them out to be ***. I'm getting sick of this site.
I love a man with nice lips, who wants to look at or kiss dry chapped lips. Get into taking care of yourself MTO!
At least his lips aren't crusty. It just looks like he has carmex on or something.
watcha kno bout me watcha watcha kno bout me watcha kno bout me watcha watcha kno!!! ha!!! too funny!
Don't talk about my man HW! I have met him before and he is such a nice man! Sneaking in that little comment about him wearing lip gloss was a slap in the face to the *** Nation. Let's keep this clean and respect his situation the way it was meant to. I hope you get better Mr. Walker! I guess one of your many personalities came out when you ran over that man at your breakout game...if you could do it all over again, would you still run over him?
Why are some people saying he's lying? He's not lying, multiple personalities is a frequent thing that many deal with. My sister has it and it comes to her many times. She talks to herself.
However, I hope he gets better!
MTO, in light of his mental issues, is it really that important that he is wearing lip gloss??
who is this guy? hahaha!
Maybe one of his personalities is ***.
LOL@MTO's comment... You all are silly
I just wanna know where u get ya lipgloss from? cus I must admit that lipgloss is poppin, its poppin.....lol
SLow news Day I see MTO.
You guys get lamer and lamer every day!
That's sad. I hope he gets the help he needs. MTO is wrong for saying it's lipgloss. It's probably just carmex or something. It's not like his lips are pink or red. And why kick the man when he's down? Crabs in a barrel MTO. There is a difference between being catty and being mean. Show some class.
you ain't frontin cus all the boys be jockin him they chase after school cus a he be lovin, hebehebe lovin it.....LMAO
thats some scary *** - that means he's liable to do some Jeffrey Dahmer type *** and blame it on his other personality...not cool at all
MTO have you ever heard of Chap Stick.. if he were ashy, you would have that on blast. Get over it.
